Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: direwolf0701 - You still got two legs or what???

damn, my skis are sittin next to me, singing. Not sure if i can ever use them again though - pretty fucked up tibia which may never be normal again. Skiing was my passion, so this really kinda sucks, big time.

Saw the Doc. - got another four weeks in a cast - just not healing well enough to get into a "boot." It is not good. But, hey, I am better off than many of our brother and sister soldiers who have given more limbs than I during this rough "war" we are fighting. My heart bleeds for them - I will get better - some of them wont. It is what it is.

DIRE!!! -- IT'S BEEN A LONG DAY WITHOUT YOUR SARCASM AND SELF-DEPRECATING HUMOR -- I'm stuck in a cheesy hotel with paper-thin walls and don't want to disrupt the neighbors with the Boys so I've been listening to silence. Left the headphones at home. Miracles do happen, dire, and I suspect your leg is gonna heal just fine - we need a miracle every day. Good to see you here, - Ashes

thanks ganges! - i appreciate the positive vibes from many miles away. (thanks to all the other kind members of the forum for their thoughts too.)

Things will get better - just taking longer than i had hoped. Very frustrating, but i'm still better off than many people, so i really shouldn't complain.

Dire---

I got a feeling that if not now then next year! It'll happen for you and I'm sending all the good vibes I can to make that leg do the voodoo that it do so well again. Please don't despair.

Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right!

Dire: Like my momma said: "If man were meant to ski, he'd a been born with boards on his feet."

Good thing you still got ears.
